The very popular conference will be held from November 9-11, 2006. Check out http://devcon.dfpug.de for more details. FoxPro developers who have attended this conference in the past call it a must see, must attend conference. I spoke at the 2005 conference and attended some of the German and as many of the English sessions. I can tell you it is an outstanding conference. Rainer Becker and his team put on a first class show.

Past conferences we hope will be scheduled again.
